Why not just leapfrog to the next level - Blatant Carry.
That's where your weapon's presence is projected in a way that won't be
missed by an inattentive public. Sequentially blinking LEDs direct the
eye to the holster. There, menacing chromed spikes, like you'd find on a
rottweiler's collar, send a clear message "you'd DAMN well better not
fuck with me" to send folks scurrying out of the way as you pass by.
Blatant Carry, along with the biggest baddest bumper that can be bolted
to the front of a truck, makes an unforgettable statement about a man.
Yeah, like the right to kill someone for charging you for the gas you
put in your car, the beer you want to drink! It's all about the right
to shoot your wife when she doesn't want to have sex with you, or
shoot your teacher because you got a B and you thought you should have

fortunately we live in reality, and understand that if the bad guy is the
only one armed there's a problem. Heck I bet he even thinks the police
are obligated to protect him and his family.

Yes he is. I lived in two countries where guns are effectively banned.
Did it stop the sort of crime mentioned? Nah. They just used knives
instead, or a bat, or their car. Oh, and rocks. Can't forget the
people that have been killed and injured using rocks. Want to outlaw
And the crime rate wasn't any lower than when I've lived in states that
allow carry (whether concealed or not). In fact, it was higher; crime
rates have nothing to do with gun laws, at all.
Gaaah. Brainwashed is right. A gun is a tool, like a knife. It's not
the gun/knife/bat that's evil, it's the asshole using it inappropriately.

You sure have a low opinion of yourself, I can see that what you're
doing in this post is projecting what actions you might take if you
ever owned a gun. You sure aren't taking about gun owners that are
effected by laws.
We are an open carry state in Oregon. Have been as long as I can
remember, and then some I'm sure. The nice thing about open carry is
that, even with ccw's you don't have to worry about the tip of your
hoster sticking out below the edge of your vest and freaking out the
simple-minded who think armed, law-abiding Americans are a bad thing.
Open carry isn't about egos. It's about availability...access.
In spite of the law you don't see that many people carrying openly
here. And the ones you DO see don't fit the profile of your fantasy.
They mostly appear to be hard-working people with nothing to hide. No
attitudes, no big bumpers. You're safe here, assuming you're not a
I can forsee that as a place changes to be "open carry", etc. then
more and more businesses would have signs on their doors to the extent
leave your weapons in your car or don't come in. Over here at least,
we have the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason, and if
they come in a place of estalishment with a weapon, I sure as hell
would refuse to service them....
good. and just maybe one of them will organize a boycott of your business.
youd be surprised how loyal those of us who support the second amendment
are. you have the right to refuse service, and we have the right to take
our business elsewhere.
